Apple 1 Computer Being Auctioned May Sell For Well Over $150K

Posted Nov 12, 2010

Above is a picture of an Apple 1 computer that may sell for between $160,000-$250,000. The Apple 1 has three capacitors, 8KB of random access memory, a printed circuit board with rows A-D, and an Apple 1 motherboard. This was one of the first computers ever made by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). This Apple computer was one of the originals built by co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

The computer retailed for $666.66 because Wozniak liked repetitive numbers. About 200 of these computers were sold before the company started working on the Apple II. This was the 82nd Apple 1 that was made and it was done in the garage of Steve Jobs’ parents house. This computer will come with the original packaging, manuals, cassette interface, basic tape, early documentation, and a letter from Steve Jobs. This computer will be auctioned through Christies on November 23 in London.
